    (Château Léoville-Barton (St Julien)) A very open, expressive and convincing nose here, perfumed and bright, with a direct style of fruit. Really very convincing and a leader within the appellation and vintage. Really well-formed fruits, defined and yet with substance and polish, with only the faintest hint of oak in the background. The palate seems as if it is from another vintage; the fruit is supple, the texture harmonious, and from within there emerges grainy tannins and a fine, bright acidity which give the wine lovely shape and definition. Rather dry in terms of texture but that's not a problem. It is grippy and youthful, with more of this grip showing in the finish. A really very convincing wine.

    (Chateau Léoville-Barton St Julien) A very attractive nose here, partly the sweetness of the oak but also the fruit, presented in a clean, reserved, restrained style. Polished, with a smooth outer shell on the palate, with gentle fruit. A lifted style, with roast herb elements, and a gentle linear finish. A little substance towards the end as well. This will come good with time, but as always is one for the classicists.

    (Chateau Léoville-Barton St Julien) There is some sweet fruit showing on the nose here, but it is not the most expressive nose. It has a reserved quality of aroma, and on the palate a very cool, stony and detached presence. A very upright and firm composition, the tannins hard but well hidden. Rather sandy fruit. Another classic, vin de garde which has good potential.
